in the way. the october jobs report will be released in three and a half hours. both the obama and romney campaign hope the numbers will help them in the race. it's too close to call right now. christine romans is going to have a look at it. christine? >> let's talk about what we are expecting in the final economic report before tuesday. in three and a half hours, we'll find out what happens for jobs and the unemployment rate. the expectation is the unemployment rate is 7.9%, picking up slightly with 125,000 jobs added in the month. the trend, though, is what is so important here, right? sometimes you get a little in the month. the trend is what's important. 7.8% was the unemployment rate when the president took office. last month, he's back to where he started. february, 2009, that's the stimulus. then the unemployment rate rise up to 10% in october, 2009 as the stimulus money was being deployed. stubbornly high unemployment. then drifting lower much of this year. we can look at job creation and you can see how jobs have been added now since the end of 2010 consistently, but not robustly
mitt romney among likely voters but when you look at the people who are both likely to vote and follow politics, that lead shrinks to only two. both sides acknowledge that getting out the vote is crucial and a huge part of doing that is finding the volunteers willing to keep calling and knocking until the election. >> is this your life now until a week from tomorrow? >> we're going to keep going up until the very end, keep making calls and doing doors until the polls close. >> you're out there. i'm going to be out there more. >> ted rowlands joins us now from racine, wisconsin. how is the race looking there? >> reporter: we mentioned a poll by marquette university that had the president up eight points, a cnn poll released after that has the lead a little bit more narrow, within the margin of error. both sides agree that this is a -- an election that could go either way. the state of wisconsin could go either way and the difference will be who can get their base out to vote. >> well, they both are certainly trying hard to do that. ted rowlands thank you very much. >> reporter: you bet.
i picked that 250,000 number, different economists say different things. both campaigns, the romney campaign says it a lot. the obama campaign agrees, say they can create 12 million jobs if four years. that's three million a year. that is 250,000 jbz a month. 80,000 more than we're seeing. they both assume, by my calculations, they assume a 4% gdp growth. we're at 2%. now increasingly, surrogates from both campaigns have told me they can do it with a 3% gdp rate which is what we might actually see next year. now former congressman, you know him, vin webber says fiscal and government restraint is the key. listen to what he said. >> we're not seeing any element of that from this administration. no fiscal restraint. only higher taxes on capital as well as on labor. that's a bad mix. >> so that's the answer that the republicans are putting forward. fiscal and government restraint will kick up your gdp growth to the extent you'll create more jobs. ken, do you buy that? >> well, i -- looks to me like their plan is to cut taxes. you hope you get really fast growth. i think the deficit woul
campaign and the romney campaign. both have put a lot of bodies on the ground in these swing states. it is a really technologically sophisticated architecture for turning voters out. and one thing we're about to see is whose architecture is better. they have not led in an ohio poll in quite a while. they have not led in any of these nbc swing state polls, there are 32 of them according to twitter this morning. if their turnout model's better than obama's which seems unlikely from what i've heard, but if it is, that could change things. otherwise it's hard to see campaigning or another ad is going to do. people have heard it all by now. >> chuck, it's donny. obviously, we're all living through sandy. >> reporter: yes. >> you're in iowa or a wisconsin or an ohio swing voter, how does it play? >> reporter: you know, i think -- i'm guessing yesterday, seeing a roep aepublican and det working together. when you look at what i think has been a very effective closing message up until sandy happened, which was he was simply going to the -- wherever he was going, sometimes it was base counti
a last minute play for pennsylvania. this weekend both mitt romney and paul ryan are campaigning in that state. ryan is in harrisburg, pennsylvania, today and tomorrow. romney heading to bucks county. and cnn political editor paul stein houser is live from harrisburg right now. the polls show that romney is narrowing the gap with obama in that state. can he realistically hope to take the state this late in the game? >> reporter: no doubt about it. 90 minutes from me at the airport you'll have paul ryan, the republican running mate holding a rally. yeah, tomorrow mitt romney is going to be in suburban philadelphia. that's the swing part of the state, the part of the state that really determines who wins pennsylvania's 20 electoral votes. the obama campaign is not taking this sitting down. jill biden is coming to pennsylvania to campaign today. and one of the big guns on the obama side, the former president clinton will be campaigning here in pennsylvania on monday. fred, i got here last night. i turned on the tv watching the local news. a lot of campaign ads. you know what? in the
, to offer housing, medical and property assistance after both natural and man-made disasters. mitt romney suddenly yearned for that very thing after refusing to answer whether he favors doing away with fema 14 times, his campaign spun this answer. quote, i believe that fema plays a key role in working with states and localities to prepare for and respond to natural disasters. as president, i will make sure that the fema has the funding it needs to fulfill its mission. that's different from what he said during a debate. >> some people say do it on a case by case basis but some people say maybe we're learning the lesson here, that states should take on more of that role. >> absolutely. every time you have an occasion and take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> in the wake of sandy, it seems those against fema's future may be having a change of heart. what do you think? is fema necessary? facebook.com/carolcnn. facebook.com/carolcnn. your re
of this really is a very delicate act right now on both the part of the president and mitt romney? >> you know, it's very delicate, yes, but, you know, the president has to do his job. what he is doing is doing his job, which is he is going to devastated areas which one would expect, the commander in chief to do. he is deploying resources. if he didn't show up there, people would be saying where is the president? i think, a, he has a job so do and he is doing it. it is a little more difficult, of course, for mitt romney. mitt romney doesn't have a job to do. he is not the president. that's his job. he has to walk a fine line and saying, look, we have to think of you people along the eastern seaboard, and then take a turn and take a turn to politics and campaigning as the president will do when he gets back on the campaign trail tomorrow, but in the meantime, he has to be president of the united states. you mention the president will be campaigning again and have stops in wisconsin and vegas. all very key to winning the election. you have romney in florida today in tampa just the last hour. tel
there are differences between romney and obama in terms of their policies, i do think both of them, you know, are subject to, as i mentioned, superpac to the best government that money can buy. going forward we should examine something different from the standpoint of policies and standpoint of government that allows u.s. voters a significant choice. >> i want to talk about this really interesting op-ed you wrote for the "washington post." you compared the u.s. debt crisis to crystal meth addiction. you said, "hooked on the temporary high of tax cuts and increased entitlements over the past several decades, the nation's capital is approaching the end of the line traveled by most addicts, reform or suffer the consequences." explain this. is this part of the new normal that you predicted after the '08 financial crisis? >> it is. it suggests that the u.s. faces a, you know, fiscal cliff decision over the next few months that is $1 billion to $2 billion deep. but a grand canyon over the nextnext few years that is over $1 trillion wide. our cbo, our congressional budget office have conservatively
bureau chief susan page. maureen dowd writes this this morning, quote, while romney campaigns in florida yesterday, christie and obama plan to tour storm damage in new jersey. a picture of bipartisanship, putting distressed people above ki dirt-slinging politics and that's a grand bargain for both of them. susan, is this politically perhaps better than campaigning for the president? >> of course we're not saying that's the reason that this is happening with the president and governor christie, but i think it's probably good politics for both of them. it shows the president helping americans at a time in need. it shows the federal government doing something to help people. that's an argument that he's been trying to make with voters general low. and, you know, chris christie may well face a re-election fight next year for governor against newark mayor cory booker. it's probably helpful for governor christie as well. the only person it's not helpful for is maybe governor romney to have one of his chief surrogates out there touring today with the president. >> somebody we should remind peop
.com. >>> with just six days to go, both campaigns are showing their last-minute strategy. the romney campaign trying to expand the election map, targeting three reliably democratic states, michigan, minnesota, pennsylvania. and while both sides are now running ads in these states, senior obama campaign adviser david axelrod said the romney strategy amounts to a hail mary pass from a campaign running out of routes to 2 sgle70. >> i will come on "morning joe" and shave off my mustache of 40 years if we lose any of those three straiates. >> let's bring in robert tram. that was pretty good, right? >> i'm not going to make that bet for my hair. let me put it that way. >> you're not going to shave your head? >> no. >> robert, is this a hail mary pass? in the swing state polls the president is winning or tied with mitt romney in florida, virginia, ohio. >> well, what it is, it's a head game. what the romney campaign is doing because they're flush with cash, they're spending money in these states to play a little bit of offense here so that the obama campaign can kind of say oh, my goodness, they're spendin

supporters to vote for revenge. i'm asking you to vote for change. >> both president obama and mitt romney are still campaigning their nonstop. here is why, the latest poll shows ohio pretty close. the president had made it to the 50% mark. mr. romney has 47% of likely ohio voters. the nbc wall street journal poll taken during the same period shows obama over the 50% threshhold, at 51% and mr. romney at 45%. and with the 18 electoral votes, you can see ohio is the battleground of the battleground states. you can see what happens in the middle of the state in the capitol of columbus, my colleague is there in the state. so don, what appears to be what you're hearing there? what are people focusing on? what is the criteria people are using to make up their minds if they have not already? >> reporter: well first, i think that people think that governor romney and the president have taken up residence here in the state because they have been here so much. they will make a couple of more stops before the next 72 hours. this is the state, to really make up their minds it is the economy, the econo

today, a day after governor romney went back on the trail. they both planned to hold virtually nonstop events between now and tuesday. the race still considered too close to call of cnn's latest poll shows president obama ahead by one point. 48-47%. a national poll. the poll in the state of colorado, the new international poll shows 15% of likely polls backing obama. that's within the sampling number. 49-45, also within the margin of error. now today, governor romney's camp said he will campaign in pennsylvania on sunday. they claimed the deep blue key stone state is in play. they said the same thing in a memo but didn't cite any particular data. the obama campaign called it a sign of desperation on their part. joining me now with the raw politics, chief white house correspondent, jessica yellin, and jim acosta and correspondent john king. >> the storm has been a real curveball for candidates. how has mitt romney been handling transitioning back to regular campaign mode? does he feel that it may have stopped his momentum? >> what we saw earlier from mitt romney, he went back on offense
the difference here. both of them, the diagrams. one has obama on the top here. the other had romney's red circle on the top. two views, one election. want to bring in the white house correspondent of "time" michael sharer and joining us from washington. welcome back. >> thank you, brooke. >> we've just learned here that the candidates and subject to change making the final stops on monday before the election, president in iowa, mitt romney in new hampshire. do you see the stops as significant here, in terms of, you know, popular or electoral significance or merely symbolic? >> well, no. all stops matter at this point in the campaign. what's notable is the same states they keep going back to time and time again. it's an incredibly narrow number of states given historical precedence. you go back to 1960s. a majority of states would be swing states in the country, majority of states would be in play and right now looking at eight, maybe nine states, maybe seven state that is are in play at this point and these guys going back to them over and over again. >> you know, one of the articles i read in t
, both sides you can bet they find something to talk about in this report, you know, president obama can say it's better than 800,000 jobs losing taking office. romney, he can say that unemployment rate is too high and guess what? both would be right. brooke. >> we'll get the numbers and spin tomorrow. alison kosik, thank you. >>> now to day three of recovery in the northeast. sandy has been absorbed by another weather system now but the superstorm really redefined what waterfront means here in both new jersey and new york. sandy created this new inlet in new jersey cutting this barrier island in to two. our affiliate spoke with a homeowner of the home that was next door. >> there's nothing -- i mean, right now there's -- it's just water where the house would be. there's not even sand where the house was. there's a wake where the house was. since there's nothing left to go back to sift through, whether it's three days or three weeks, you know, all we would be looking at is a sand pile. >> and since this video was taken there, crews have built up a road so trucks can pass by. this is just
they have a 50.1% chance of winning. and you talk to the romney people, it's the same thing. both sides understand, it is close, and it could go either way. and anybody that thinks that this race is anything but a toss-up right now is such an ideologue, they should be kept away from typewriters, computers, laptops and microphones for the next ten days because they're jokes. >> well, you know, i think mark shares part of what i feel and what i have found from talking to people over this past weekend. democrats especially is that there is a level of confidence, but it's laced with a level of anxiety that reduces the confidence that this is still 50/50. and you're absolutely right. anybody who says, you know, this thing is in the tank for one candidate or another, huh-uh. it's not there. i think you found the same thing. >> democrats who think they're going to win believe as they have all along romney is unelectable, he's just not an acceptable choice and will win because we've done enough to disqualify him. i spent friday night and friday day with romney. he's performing well in those bat
this morning, i can tell you this, both sides are working extra hard, the obama campaign concedes the romney campaign is doing much better than the mccain campaign. governor romney will be in this area, not cincinnati, but to the north of here tonight. we're told republicans expect some 35,000 people at that rally. if that kind of a number shows up, let's get ready for a long count in ohio. >> oh, yeah. i've been going around the state, you're here. and it is get out the vote, get out the vote early, early, early. that's what both sides are focusing on. you're right. the republicans here are extremely organized and are really motivated this time because they know what happened back in 2008. early voting, i've been watching it, what about what you've seen in the same state where i am, do you think it is going to exceed 2008 numbers? >> yes. though there was a dip in cuyahoga county after the storm. the day of voting, for a couple of days, a little below what it was in 2008. overall across the state, both parties think that it will exceed. obama campaign thinks ts a key asset. our goal is to b
're in ohio. many people think it's the absolutely crucial state that both sides have to win. can mitt romney become president realistically if he doesn't win ohio? >> either one can win without ohio. simple fact is probably the man who wins is going to win ohio. is it theoretically possible for either one of them to win without ohio, yeah. we can go through scenarios with wisconsin and colorado, pennsylvania slipping the other way. but believe me, this rally was in ohio for a very very special reason and i think president obama was here either yesterday or today. this is a crucial state. >> rudy -- >> whoever wins ohio wins the white house. >> while you've been talking, general wesley clark who was on just before you has been listening and actually wants to come back at you. so i'm going to let him have his say now. general. >> thanks, piers. i did want to come back, because i think the politicization of what's happened in benghazi deserves an answer. first of all, as the mayor well knows, after 9/11, democrats did not politicize this tragedy. not the first day, the first hour, not the first
intangible stuff that makes him believe mitt romney is going to win, things like crowd size and closing arguments. according to him, all of that stuff together shows that mitt romney is totally definitely going to win this thing. both are trying to convince the country it's obvious they are going to win. and i think it is worth listening to these arguments and checking qc if these arguments are based in good sense. but honestly, it's also worth recognizing that every campaign on both sides does this every time. for example, here is how this particular phenomenon looked the day before the election in 2008 when this bragging that we get every year was being done by a prominent john mccain republican surrogate named mitt romney. >> inside a campaign, what do you get on the inside that we don't get on the outside because you're doing your own polling? >> you see the widest array of polls. you look at mason dixon that came out yesterday. you take that apart. it's pretty close to the internal polls. what it shows is that john mccain is leading in the states he's got to lead in like ohio and f
